The U.S. Men’s National Team will train at UNF’s Hodges Stadium today and tomorrow in preparation for their third and final match of the Send-Off Series. They will play against Nigeria at EverBank Field at 6 p.m. Saturday. The game will be broadcast on ESPN and you can purchase tickets here.

The practices at Hodges Stadium are not open to the public or students. If you want to check out the team’s practice, grab your binoculars and head to the second-story balcony of the Student Wellness Center and you can see the team clearly. If you want to attend an open practice, at 5 p.m. on Friday at EverBank Field, the men’s team will be practicing and it will be open to the public. The team is fresh off of a 2-1 win against Turkey on June 1, and hoping to have a successful send-off in Jacksonville before playing Ghana on June 16 at the World Cup in Brazil.
